Based on a billboard, UFC lightweight contender Tony Ferguson figures “I’ve got some weight to cut.”
“El Cucuy” today tweeted a snapshot of a billboard for UFC 216 – with one minor error – and had a sense of rumor about (via Twitter):
Yes, Ferguson (22-3 MMA, 12-1 UFC) is fighting Kevin Lee (16-2 MMA, 9-2 UFC) for a title – but it’s not the interim featherweight one. Instead, he fights for the interim lightweight belt in UFC 216’s pay-per-view headliner on Oct. 7 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
Ferguson, who’s No. 3 in the USA TODAY Sports/MMAjunkie MMA lightweight rankings, and No. 8-ranked Lee are likely fighting for the chance to next meet reigning 155-pound champ Conor McGregor (21-3 MMA, 9-1 UFC), who recently took a hiatus from MMA for a blockbuster boxing bout with Floyd Mayweather this past month. However, McGregor hasn’t necessarily committed to facing the Ferguson vs. Lee winner next.
